If you’re one of the millions of people that suffer from hearing loss, our audiologist in NYC wants you to know about an available service that makes talking on the phone easier than ever! CaptionCall is a system that uses revolutionary technology to provide phone captioning services for those with hearing loss. The best part? It’s completely free!
CaptionCall is a specially-designed phone that displays written caption of your phone call on a large, easy-to-read screen. It functions like a regular telephone – all you do is dial the phone or answer an incoming call, and let the state-of-the-art system take it from there!
Each system is designed to offer remarkable sound quality and can be adjusted to suit each patient’s specific needs. Whether you suffer hearing loss due to age, illness, or any number of other reasons, our audiologist in NYC recommends CaptionCall because it offers unprecedented benefits that can make your daily life easier.
Anyone with medically-recognized hearing loss qualifies for CaptionCall. Just submit a certification form signed by our audiologist in NYC and, upon approval, you will be contacted by a CaptionCall trainer. This trainer will deliver and install your phone, plus show you how it’s used, at no cost to you. A reliable internet connection is all that’s needed to make your new system function properly.
As a provision of the Americans with Disabilities Act, phone service accessibility must be provided to those with hearing loss at an equal level as it’s provided to those without hearing loss. To fulfill this requirement, the Interstate Telecommunications Relay Service Fund was developed, and has been used to provide CaptionCall to those with hearing loss for over 20 years. This fund is paid for in the form of a small fee charged to each existing phone service account, and is administered by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
